i had 4 eqnquires in  last 35 days.... from penfed membership ( Not card) .  and 3 enquiries for increasing limits on discover, bank of america, and citi.  all enquiries on euifax  and one on trans union.

 

Current  score.. fico transunion  723,  fico equifax  708.   (Becuase of enquiries it fell)

Your credit is fine now.  It will be better when the lower balances report.  Apply now or wait.  Both should be fine.

 

As for which card - CSP is a travel card.  Or get both.  They serve different purposes.

I agree with djrez4.  You could wait if you like esp for Amex but if you apply for both I would apply for CSP then Amex.
